Thought this might be of interest to our members. If you are interested in

learning more about the research study, I can fax you more details. The

Fund doesn’t have anything in it’s current budget set aside for research.

Subject: Paralympic Research


Dr. Ben Johnson, the Director for the Center of Sports Medicine here at GSU

has developed a research proposal which has been approved by the Sydney

Paralympic Organizing Committee. The proposal is a biomechanics analysis of

lower extremity amputee sprinters. Dr. Johnson is working with NBC and the

Discovery Channel as a biomechanical consultant during the Sydney Olympic

Games. He needs an additional $5,000-$7,000 to cover the expenses of the

Paralympic study, which is a continuation of a study started in 1996 and

continued in 1998 @ the Flex Foot Invitational.

He is willing to share the research findings with a sponsor and also is

willing to develop biomechanic graphics that can be used on websites to

document various aspects of lower amputee running techniques.

Julie, please contact me early next week and we can discuss whether there

may be any takers out there.

Hopefully all is well. I enjoyed getting to spend some time with you, Todd

and Dennis at the Seminar. Your participation was greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
